Back in the mid-1990s, you could have picked up the latest NAF NAF jacket, Eclipse jeans or Karl Kani T-shirt for anything between £10 and £15 depending on your bartering skills.

Worn, washed and weathered over the past three decades, you might expect to be able to pick up these retro garments for a fair bit less in today’s market.

But you’d be wrong. Labelled ‘vintage’, they now sell for big money online, with collectors seemingly willing to shell out big money for the garish gear.

On Depop, the social shopping app popular with young people, second-hand clothing from brands including Spliffy and Chipie are listed for eye-watering amounts.

Eclipse clothing, often featuring drug imagery or references, was part of the rave culture of the early 90s.

Back then, a long-sleeved T-shirt adorned with the acid house smiley face would have probably set you back £15 or been offered in a ‘mix and match, two for £20 deal’. Today, this very item is listed at a staggering £90 on Depop.
